My Brain is a Jumble

My brain tends to be all over the place. A big jumble of thoughts and ideas. I have to work really hard to keep my concentration and focus on the tasks which I have set out for myself. Right now I have only two big ones which need to get done. I have to finish […]

Hello, my name is Christopher and I am addicted to books. I write this confession in a room which is currently filled with books. Every wall, every nook, every space I can cram a book in there is one. I have so much credit at the used book store here in town I have stopped […]
